It’s been a while since I’ve done any artwork. I don’t know exactly why I stopped. I guess my creative juices dried up. Same with my writing. I’m trying to get those juices flowing again. On a whim, I bought some soft pastels and paper at LotteMart on Saturday. I just pulled them out tonight. I forgot how much I love the feeing of chalk on my fingers. I should be a teacher in an old fashioned school that actually uses chalkboards rather than white marker boards.
Anyhow, I’ve had this image sort of playing through my mind the last few weeks. I get these awesome images in my head, but I never can seem to translate those onto paper. This one actually turned out half way decently.
The basic image is a isolated island out in the middle of the ocean. It’s actually a very small island.
Phew, I’m back. Firefox crashed on me twice. Once randomly and once when I opened a site that had an all Flash front page. I’m guessing the non-Adobe implementation of Flash doesn’t work quite as well as I hoped.
As I was saying. It’s a very small island that contains a very large tree. It’s a stormy night. The tree is getting battered by the storm, but it is still standing (hence the title of the post).
Ya know. I actually like how this turned out. I think I captured the movement of the tree in the wind.
